CLASSICAL | Skaneateles Chamber Music Festival 

Luscious French chamber music performed on a summer evening near a beautiful central New York lake? Sounds like an ideal Friday evening to me. You can experience it this Friday at the Skaneateles Chamber Music Festival's concert "Paris 1900," featuring the Parker Quartet. The program will be irresistible to any Francophile. The two big works are masterpieces of the Belle poque, Maurice Ravel's string quartet and Ernest Chausson's concerto for violin, piano, and string quartet (with guest artists Ian Swensen, violin, and Rieko Aizawa, piano). Edgar Allan Poe was an inspiration to many 19th century French writers, and also to a few French composers, as can be heard in the program opener: André Caplet's 1919 "Conte Fantastique," a sort of mini-harp concerto crossed with a tone poem, based on Poe's "Masque of the Red Death." Harpist Bridget Kibbey is featured in this fascinating piece.

"Paris 1900," presented by Skaneateles Chamber Music Festival, will take place Friday, August 12, at First Presbyterian Church, 97 East Genesee Street, Skaneateles. 8 p.m. $22-$28. The festival continues through September 3. skanfest.org.
